Today was the first day of my daughter's Spring Break. Each year I celebrate this "holiday" by making the same tired jokes in my blog. I cleverly juxtapose a cliched MTV-style booze-fueled spring break with the more staid reality of caring for a six year-old whose school has closed for the week.
I'll be doing the same thing again this year.
SPRING FREAKIN' BREAK 2006!!!
The bacchanalia began this morning with EXTREME apple juice shots. Daisy easily pounded half of one while I guzzled down a couple mugs of coffee. OUTRAGEOUS!
Afterwards, Daisy and I took a WICKED drive across town 'cause she was jonesing to hang with one of her gal pals for a house party/playdate. When I dropped her off, I found that I had forgotten both her eyeglasses and her lunch. INSANELY EXCELLENT!! I had a rockin' time driving back home and then back across town again to deliver these party essentials. I totally almost kind of caught some air on a gnarly SF hill.
You get the idea.
Afterwards I did some birthday shopping for Hank. I think mostly what she needs for her birthday is a better nom du blog. This "Hank" thing has served its purpose pretty well, but perhaps it's not the perfect moniker. There's a pretty thin line between isn't-it-funny-to-pretend-my-wife-has-a-boy's-name and the inevitable addiction to hot man-on-man love. I'm clumsy enough without needing to tread upon that type of slippery slope.
I'm now accepting ideas for her new name.
